September Worship ~ Come to the Table
In this “Come to the Table” series, we hear the call to dine with Jesus – an invitation that means much more than a simple eating experience. It never was with Jesus. The table was the place where he not only fed people, but challenged them to acts of hospitality that reflect God’s way. When we say “yes” to the place at Christ’s table, we accept a way of life that embraces God’s definition of love, peace, grace and joy.
9/3/17 ~ Come to the Table (Worship at 9:30am)
Jesus was clear that the table is open to all – saints, sinners, strangers, the joyful, and those who weep.
9/10/17 ~ The Table of Love (Fall Worship schedule resumes at 10:00am)
Jesus chose time and again to seek out the intention of one’s heart – to gather together and engage in conversation as a way of moving toward right relationship.
9/17/17 ~ The Table of Peace
We welcome each other at the table even when we disagree. Coming to table of peacemaking is hard work. Forgiveness is on the menu at God’s table and we are called to sit down and find merciful ways to deal with one another despite our differences.
9/24/17 ~ The Table of Grace
God’s table is one of plenty. God gives more than we can ever imagine; more grace than we expect. At God’s pot-luck of grace, even the last in line have more than enough to eat!
10/1/17 ~ The Table of Joy – World Communion Sunday
